Personalizing and handwriting a letter, postcard, or birthday message makes a gift extra special for a loved one. Of course, the use of nice handwriting and colorful pens makes them even better! What you might not know is that the type of pen you use can make all the difference with lettering. That's why we asked Mhel (@letteringbymhel) for her recommendations on what to use when lettering.
She says, "When I was a beginner, I found it mind-boggling to find the best tools for starting my lettering journey. There are an overwhelming amount of tools available to choose from and I had no idea where to start. I wish someone made a list to tell me which tools are perfect for beginners, exploring creative techniques, and learning new lettering styles.
To save you some frustration and time, I've provided you my top 10 tools for elevating your letters. In this list, you'll find pens that are best for small lettering, large lettering, techniques such as blending and even satisfying shimmery effects.
As you read my list, there is one thing all the tools have in common and that is durability. I've owned all these pens for at least a year or more and I can confirm that these are long-lasting quality tools. Let's get started!”
This wraps up my top 10 tools for elevating your letters. My suggestion to figure out what to get at first would be to determine what type of lettering would you like to do. Do you want to start with small lettering pieces or larger pieces? Ask yourself if you're interested in colorful lettering and try blending colors, too.
I hope you found my list helpful as you explore the world of lettering. For more inspiration on how to use these pens, feel free to check out my Instagram page: Lettering by Mhel. Most importantly, just be creative and have fun!
